I am having trouble finding a source for the split ring hanger and the top plate conector. I have looked at home depot and at our local plumbing store. No one can help me. They keep pointing me to electrical grounding clamps. Please help with any suggestions for where I could find these items. Thanks for your time Reply trish says: April 28, 2012 at 7:31 pm Found the split ring at lowes gonna use a flange instead of the top plate connector.

Reply Sandra says: June 28, 2014 at 6:40 pm What is a flange and what dept. Can’t I find it? Reply Heather says: August 4, 2014 at 5:43 pm Made these today…neither our Home Depot nor Lowe’s had the top plate nor the split rings. I found the top plate at an old local hardware store and had to use two copper pieces and drill a hole in one for the split ring effect. I didn’t use wine bottles, but teal triangular shaped bottles found at Hobby Lobby to match the colors in the backyard. Love, love, love them!
